  1. This post was made an hour or two ago and has it already devolved into barely topical flaming. Amazing. On the actual subject of the post, I do agree with some of your points. I think that, although we have reached a state of multipolarity, I don't think it's true multipolarity, due to the fact that players are too beholden to the security of themselves and their alliances. I also think that minispheres were less popular than being paperless because being paperless requires one alliance to sacrifice their security, while minispheres require a group of alliances to sacrifice their collective security for the sake of game dynamism, which is still true to this day. However, here is where we arrive at the problem with minispheres. In order for the game's politics to fundamentally change, every single major alliance would have to take a leap of faith and shed every single practice they've picked up over the past 1-7 years, otherwise we'd invariably end up at the same place as we are at now. And call me a pessimist, but I don't think this could ever happen. I think alliances are too entrenched in their ideologies and rivalries to move in a way that puts them at risk. Hedge and TKR forming Hollywood together is a great example of this, but its certainly not the only example. A lot of other alliances are guilty of this as well, but its not inherently a bad practice. The game doesn't dictate that you have to be an idealist willing to take a few blows for the sake of sending a message, nor does it dictate that you have to be an absolute realist thats unwilling to compromise your security. But just a couple of people being the former won't change anything, since the latter group of people will always hold all of the cards, forcing the idealists back to the reality of the rigidness of politics (leading to dogpiles and whatnot). Actually, there might be one way to change the game's political environment so radically, but it'd be entirely dependent upon the game mechanics changing in some way to reward both war and becoming more independent on an alliance-wide scale (besides treasures, because we all know those suck). At the moment, the only in game incentive to war is to impede a competitor's growth, and even then an alliance fighting a competitor slows its own growth and risks falling behind other competitors. I think that with the right changes, both Politics and War (pun intended) could become something interesting, and perhaps even fun(?), but I don't think those changes are coming any time soon.
  2. Hahaha ok this is actually pretty good I'll give you that. The important distinction however is that all of these slackers (besides Alpha because they dodge whatever war is too hard for them to fight) is that they get regularly flattened by Grumpy whenever they fight them, except for in this rare instance where Grumpy has been neutralized since the two other spheres with the largest whale tiers are working together. In every war in recent history (and every potential 1v1 sphere war), Grumpy slackers are able to coast by taking minimal damage due to their relative safety in mega-whale tiering. This also allows them make choices too risky for other whales (or any other player really), such as spending all of their cash on cities and saving up for rebuild during the war.
  3. Ok buddy. I'd also like to note that since Pascal is managing the offshore, he is constantly moving between alliances, some of which were not tracked by CTOwned before they were deleted. Here's his stats according to Locutus, which tracks all of those wars (and yes this is excluding the KT war damage): And here are your Guns and Roses CTOwned stats: Seems pretty clear cut to me, even with the disparities between the two tools. Not until we start making better names for these wars that aren't generic garbage like "Error 552" or "10-Day War".
  4. Would've posted the rip bozo gif but I think I posted it under another Camelot forum post. Also thank you for clarifying that you aren't hitting Camelot because you think they're tied to Hollywood like last time 🙏
  5. If you're asking if I think that NPO's Last Time should be the war name, I actually quite like the name "Dial Up". Even though it's original intention was to make fun of Sheepy's servers that invariably go to shit every war (albeit in a more clever way than "Error 552" does), the name matches how the scale and the intensity of the war "dialed up" over the course of 9 months. I think war names should be representative of the war and the politics surrounding it, and most importantly they should feel unique.
  6. Controversial take but Error 522 is a boring name because this happens literally every war. In fact, the game should be named Politics & Error 522 because it's so predictable. So yeah, to whoever may be reading this, don't vote for generic names that can be used for every single war.
  7. APPARENTLY THE FORUM SERVERS ARE BETTER THAN THE GAME SERVERS BECAUSE I THOUGHT THIS WOULD TAKE 50 MINUTES TO UPLOAD
  8. ECLIPSE HAS ALREADY DECLARED WAR,,, NOTHING TO SEE HERE THANK YOU SEKRIT QUACK/BLACKWATER PUPPET FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE THE OLD PEOPLE HAVE FAILED TO CLUMP HAPPILY WITH THE REST OF ORBIS,,, SO WE WILL GET AGGRESSIVE WHICH CB SHOULD ECLIPSE USE AGAINST GRUMPY?
